Dance With Demons

Dance With Demons Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

His legendary shows included Fiddler on the Roof, The King and I, West Side Story, Gypsy, and Funny Girl. His celebrity colleagues included Barbra Streisand, Bette Davis, Stephen Sondheim, Natalie Wood, Ethel Merman, and Montgomery Clift. His private demons included sexual and religious conflicts, scandalous betrayals during the McCarthy hearings, and an insane drive for perfection that bordered on the sadistic.

Based on hundreds of interviews with his closest friends and enemies, this groundbreaking biography of "nightmare genius" (Tony Walton) Jerome Robbins, provides the first complete portrait of the man and the artist. It's a harrowing, heartbreaking, and candid look at life backstage.

"Comprehensive and lively." (Publishers Weekly)

"Contains plenty of dish." (The Wall Street Journal)

Synopsis:

Explores the life and accomplishments of the renowned choreographer and director, from his work on "The King and I" to the complexities of his personal life.
